Due to lack of quorum, Deputy Chairman of Central Provincial council W. M. Yasamanna had to postpone the session 3 times.

The session was postponed after the UNP councillors pointed out the lack of quorum at the initiation of the provincial council.

Today, the budget proposed by the provincial agriculture minister Nimal Piyathissa was scheduled to be taken in to debate.

Our news team informed that both UPFA and UNP ministers avoided entering the council before presenting the budget.

When our news team inquired about this, Central Province councillor Udith Anuradha stated that Provincial Agriculture Minister Nimal Piyathissa has criticised the provincial council system implemented by the 13th amendment.

Because of this reason he has voted against the budget proposed by Minister Nimal Piyathissa’s ministry.

This is the opinion of Central Provincial Agricultre Minster Nimal Piyathissa about Provincial Council system.
